There is more and more research being done and being planned for Ayahausca. This centuries-old drink originating from the Amazon basin has long been used by indigenous people as strong medicine. Now, Ayahuasca is entering the mainstream and becoming a trend as researchers explore its use for the treatment of depression, PTSD, eating disorders and addiction.
In order for scientists to do research, they often need people to participate in their studies. Depending on the type of research, usually, you have to live in the city where the research is being conducted. If you don’t live there, you would have to travel there on a regular basis. Rarely, you can participate in a study at a distance.
It doesn’t cost anything to participate in research. Often the researchers will pay you a small stipend to cover your incidental costs. Sometimes you may even get different types of medical testing or treatment if needed for free while participating in a study.
If you’re interested in participating in Ayahuasca research, here is how you do it:
Through this link, is a worldwide search engine for studies. Just enter “Ayahuasca” in the “Other Terms” search box, and you can see what is available worldwide. You can filter your results for location or, for example, which studies are recruiting. You can contact the person running the study or you can ask your doctor to contact the person for you.
MAPS, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, is another organization where you can find research studies. Note that there are studies other than just with Ayahuasca. On the previous clinicaltrials.gov website, you can also search for other medicines like LSD, MDMA, ketamine or Psilocybin mushrooms, for example, which MAPS freely lists.
The advantage of participating in research is that you can help modern science to move ahead. You can participate in the cutting edge of research, and you often meet experts in the field. Sometimes you will have access to treatments that aren’t available to the public yet. It’s exciting and it’s useful. You are performing a public service. And helping others is what we’re all about.
